SNOW SHOE – PennDOT District 2 will place a radar controlled speed display sign along Route 144, near Snow Shoe. The sign will be located on state Route 144 northbound, just north of the Snow Shoe borough line. The sign was placed this July 14, at the request of local residents.
The speed display sign will remain on location for about four weeks and will register the speeds of vehicles traveling along that section of SR 144.
The speed display sign uses radar to determine the speeds of oncoming traffic. Those vehicle speeds are then posted on the lighted section of the sign. Above the speed display is a speed limit sign showing the posted speed limit for that section of Route 144. The Pennsylvania State Police will monitor the section of SR 144 where the speed display sign is located.
PennDOT reminds motorists they can log on to 511pa.com or call 511 from any phone to check traffic conditions before heading out.
